A Tower Theatre production
by Jean Anouilh
Translated by Barbara Bray
Directed by Ian Hoare
Jean Anouilh's version of this timeless story is one of the greatest French plays of the 20th Century - a brilliantly theatrical treatment of Antigone's passionate and fatal determination to give a proper burial to her fallen brother in defiance of state authority.
Written in Nazi-occupied France in 1944, the play's rich web of political, moral and psychological themes could hardly be more pertinent today.
